Hundreds of Thousands Send Terrorists Poignant Message with National Mall Rally

Rally at National Mall

More than a month into Israel’s war against Hamas hundreds of thousands of people flocked to the U.S. capital in support of the Jewish state. Tuesday’s rally comes after weeks of pro-Palestinian protests that shut down streets in major cities and included outbursts of antisemitism on college campuses.

Students, adults, and senior citizens from around the country joined the crowd because they wanted to be counted in this moment. Organizers say Tuesday’s march shows the world something they are thankful for: Americans support Israel.

With a message in songs to stamp out hate, organizers say an estimated 290,000 people spoke with their feet by gathering on the National Mall to stand with Israel, condemn antisemitism, and call for the safe return of the remaining 240 hostages abducted by Hamas on October 7th. Family members fought back tears to tell their story.

“My family is being held hostage by terrorists,” said Alana Zeitchik, the cousin of six hostages. “I am here with you because I love my family and I promised I would scream to the ends of the earth for them.”

The ‘March for Israel’ saw the bipartisan endorsement of one of America’s closest allies as criticism intensified over Israel’s offensive in Gaza, set off by the Hamas massacre of 1,400 Israelis.

Overlooking a mass of Israeli and U.S. flags, top congressional leaders including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries joined hands with Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson and Iowa Senator Joni Ernst.

“There are few issues in Washington that can so easily bring together leaders of both parties and both chambers,’ Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson said. ‘But the survival of Israel and her people unites us together.”

He was joined by voices on the other side of the aisle. “Congress will continue to support in a bipartisan way Israel and Israel’s unequivocal right to exist,” Rep. Jeffries said.

Crowd members draped in the Israeli flag stood side by side with Christians as well.
